Quoteworthy:

"We are also looking for one fight before we'd like the rematch with Werdum. However, the rematch is extremely important for us; Fedor should have a chance to avenge his loss."

Co-owner and President of M-1 Global Vadim Finkelchtein is already planning a rematch between Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum -- just as soon as "The Last Emperor" gets some work in against another opponent to stay fresh. This comes after Werdum revealed plans of a possible overseas fight prior to his Strikeforce return and if everything goes according to plan, a rematch could materialize at some point in mid-2011. Of course this is MMA, and nothing ever goes according to plan. Time will tell, but in the meantime, who's a good candidate for Emelianenko's next fight following his stunning submission loss back in June? (It won't be Overeem, says this observer.)
